Career options with a Masters or a Doctorate in Mathematics

The graduate program in mathematical sciences at Jacobs University is designed to equip students with the necessary tools and scientific maturity to embark on a research career in academia or industry.

Due to the central role of mathematics in science, there is a never ceasing demand for mathematicians in academia worldwide. Universities and colleges offer tenure-track and tenured positions to Ph.D.s; certain positions are more focused on research and others more on teaching.

Graduates in mathematical sciences are well sought after by non-academic employers. Consequently, mathematicians enjoy a large choice of well-regarded jobs outside of the university world, for example in research and development, finance, banking, and management.
